    Très belle sortie en mer et moments magiques avec les dauphins. Entourée d’ une (petite) équipe très professionnelle, parlant parfaitement l’anglais et très sympathique. Je recommande!

    Absolutely fantastic. Pedro was great, really knowledgeable and definitely made the most out of the 3 hours! Saw more dolphins than we could count as well as my first time seeing a blue shark in the wild. Would definitely recommend!

    Unbelievable!!! It was wonderful! We came with our three children (13, 8 and 6 years old) and we absolutely loved it. Great guide, great bays, fantastic dolphins. We are overjoyed! Thank you so much!

    Great trip. The staff were friendly and genuinely enthusiastic. The dolphins were beautiful to watch. I thought three hours might be too long for our 6 year old but it seemed to go very quickly and we all enjoyed it.

    We had an amazing morning. Very friendly and knowledgeable people who made sure the children were safe and warm from the seabreeze with life jackets and jackets. Saw two kinds of dolphins, joyful. Caves, beautiful scenery. We all loved it. Recommend.

    Equipa muito atenciosa, desde a marcação até ao fim da viagem. Vimos golfinhos e ainda fizemos um passeio pelas grutas e praias, com direito a prova de moscatel. Experiência incrível!
